Creating Confident Caregivers is a program for family members caring for a person with dementia and/or memory loss. Two-hour sessions are held once a week for six weeks and lead by staff trained in the program. Caregivers receive new information, skills and attitudes to manage stress and increase effective caregiving skills. Free respite care is provided to their loved one on the days of the workshop so that caregivers are able to attend.
"I feel this program was very hands-on and educational, it not only gives you skills as a caregiver, but gives you insight into what the person is feeling and experiencing."
